As a graduate student Leda was mediocre; as a teaching assistant - bored; and as a waitress - incompetent. Her parent's were well-known artists, her sister a budding photographer, her brother an astrophysicist. And she was not much of anything: not talented, not smart, not attractive.

She was curious and worried, though not alarmed, when she was abruptly called home for a family meeting. But the cold gloom and shivering darkness that greeted her were jarring and strange. When she learned of the danger surrounding her family and of her status as the one - the hero of the quest - her worry tuned into disbelief. And as details of the quest emerged her disbelief turned into fear.

She was assured that there were many that would help her along the way - her family, master teachers, aides trained in tracking and battle, and two remarkably handsome and powerful men. But it was unclear who she could place her trust in; betrayal hovered at every turn.

She had always used fairy tales and myths to help her cope with life. Now they were essential to navigate through the dangers and challenges of her journey.

This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.
